    Quite simple really - will the new macbook pro (which is slightly larger than the old one) fit in the various designs of neoprene cases which were made for the older generation macbook pro?

    If yes, then any oppinions on which provide the best protection? So far I've been looking at LArobe, Incase and Crumpler. My only request is something with an inner lip and decent amount of padding.

    I bought an old MBP sleeve/case for the new macbook pro that i just bought it it doesn't fit well at all, I really have to stretch it to fit it in everytime.

    theres an answer, not the one i wanted to hear, but atleast we all know now. Here's hoping 3rd party companies buck up and sew a few extra mm into their cases.

    I tried my old case came to the conclusion that a 'finely crafted' self made one was the way to go...

    ... I may start selling them online!
